Yes, still lovin every minute and pleased you are still enjoying your's as well.
I'm assuming my Yamaha also has the factory strings which after a week of fumbling, haven't really settled! Mind you, I didn't work them in correctly, initially assuming they must come from the factory O.K. and just in need of a tune. But whilst they are tied neatly at the bridge, it is the complete opposite on the tuning rollers, so I should get on and tidy them up to at least give them half a chance to hold tune...
On reflection, I should have done it as soon as I got it home as reading your post had me think about the last time I purchased a new CG which was a Maton C25 in the early 1990's and for the first few days I thought I had a dud as the 6th string would not hold tune for more than a few notes.. So I took it back to the store and had them adjust the tuning machine and despite holding tune in the store, once I had it home, out went the 6th string in moments flat. At my next guitar lesson, I relayed my concern to my teacher and after a quick process of elimination, he replaced the string and my dilemma was resolved. Dud string..
Funny are the things one remembers at moments like this, but as for right now I can't for the life of me remember which strings I used on the Maton or how I actually managed to play a piece...not that it matters of course, but odd considering what one does remember!
Any how, enough of my ramblings and I will be sure to post an update once I get around to changing the strings and not that I really have an ear or feel for it, will try a few types / brands until I find the right set for me and my CG.
